About the property

STUNNING Waterfront Texas home w/private boat slip/pier & multi-patios

Texas Executive Home for your longer term stay on the Lake!!! Why be in the standard hotel when you can have a short commute to the "new Woodlands Energy Corridor" from our home away from home! Work during the day while your family enjoys beautiful Lake Conroe and come home to relax in our very quiet peaceful community!

Enjoy EVERY minute at “The Cove” as our family nick-named our new Texas home! We call it “The Cove” as we have the best of Lake Conroe in our opinion – our home sits on a large, wide, deep channel with very few homes before we are on open water. So from the back of our home, we have a “private” place to swim, kayak, paddle board, play, and relax without the open water’s waves and/or boat traffic - so bring YOUR toys! When we want the open water fun, we are a mere 1-2 minutes to a different level of action! You can bring your boat or jet skis and launch them at our Pebble Glen community boat ramp just a short walk from “The Cove” – there are also several Conroe water sport rentals available on the internet.

Since our home is a modern Texas 2-story with multiple huge wrap-around patios of living and entertaining space, as well as decking and courtyard, you can spend quality time OUTSIDE to enjoy the spectacular views or INSIDE with all the open, large windows and doors bringing the outdoors in! You won’t miss a thing no matter where you find your comfort at “The Cove”.

We LOVE Texas, so we decorated this waterfront home with some Texas charm to make you feel at home, Texas-style! There are 3 bedrooms upstairs with 2 full baths, and a small game loft with access to the veranda. Downstairs has all the family living, kitchen and breakfast space. Additionally, there’s another study/bedroom with French double doors that is set up with couches for those relaxing, reading and nap times. It ALSO converts to a sleeping room if you need it, as the new couches pull out with upgraded full and single mattresses to sleep another 2 people. The downstairs bathroom is conveniently located to that study/bedroom, and great for the outdoor entertaining, as well. Also on the first floor, you will find the full laundry room with washer, dryer, and wet sink for your convenience.

Bring your food and drink as at the heart of “The Cove” is the Texas-sized kitchen with custom cabinets, island, granite and stainless steel appliances! It’s AMAZING and open to all the entertainment inside & out so the cooks don’t miss out on the fun! It is fully loaded with what I think you will need to prepare some great yummies for your family.

Of course, there is indoor entertainment too with a new big screen TV for the large open family room, as well as another for the Master Bedroom. There is Direct TV and internet available to you with your vacation rental. There is also an assortment of family board games, cards and puzzles.

With your stay here at “The Cove” in Pebble Glen, you will find that we are in a small gated community with few homes so there is peace and quiet - this is NOT A PARTY HOUSE. If and when you are ready for some “city life”, you can adventure to the shopping, movies, and other family entertainment/restaurants starting at about 5 miles from “The Cove”. To the south of us is the heart of Conroe at about 8 miles, and The Woodlands is a quick 20 minutes (~19 miles). There you will find many other amenities, like: more shopping and restaurants, theaters, and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion for great concerts. To the north of us about 20 minutes is the Sam Houston National Forest for hiking on the 128-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail or enjoy the many other park amenities.

Come stay at “The Cove” and chill at this STUNNING lakefront Texas Home!

If you are celebrating a special occasion and/or need special considerations, please let us know before you arrive. Since “The Cove” is in the quiet Pebble Glen community, there will be no big parties, no smoking, and safety will always be first.

About The Gregory's

Billy grew up coming to his family’s lake home in Conroe, and we wanted the same quality time with our family. So in summer 2014, we were blessed to find this Lake Conroe gem to share special times with family and friends. We like to do MANY outdoor activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, boating and bar-b-queing… all Texas style – Big and with Music, Family & Friends! When we are not in Houston’s hustle and bustle life, this stunning Texas home let’s us do some of the things we LOVE to do - water activities and BarBQue right at our back door.

The Gregory's purchased this house in 2014

Great kid-free weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my husband with a weekend getaway with two of our close friends. It was our anniversary and he was pleasantly surprised! The house is beautifully kept with modern decor and appliances. The house sits on the lake and has an amazing view especially seen on the wraparound balcony. Our friend brought his boat and we happily enjoyed the lake. It was very convenient that there was a slip on the property. The owners were very friendly and quick to respond to all correspondence. I highly recommend this property for a nice and relaxing vacation.

Fantastic Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My Brothers and I were looking for a vacation home to have a small family party to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. We chose The Cove and could not have been more pleased. There was plenty of room for everyone in beautiful accommodations. The kitchen was well stocked enough to have all the serving pieces needed for a birthday party. Complimentary cold water bottles and a nice bottle of wine were waiting for us upon arrival. The home is beautiful and every detail has been carefully thought out. If you forgot sunglasses, Kelly has extra pairs available. Kelly was a delight to work with and very helpful. I only have two very small observations that could be improved upon. The secondary bedrooms have double beds and that accommodates children but not really adults. Another issue is the door chime is always on and one control pad is in the master bedroom. No sleeping in if people are coming and going to enjoy the beautiful decks in the morning. I understand the need for safety but I really wish we could have changed that option. That is such a petty complaint I hardly consider it a complaint. We had a wonderful time and we loved working with the Gregory's! The Cove is a gorgeous home that is perfect for a family vacation. There are so many activities close by and Lake Conroe is beautiful.

We Love The Cove!!

  • 5 of 5

Let Me just sum it up in three simple letters, WOW!!! We absolutely loved our stay. Great location and the home is so welcoming. We were able to relax and just enjoy our boat on the lake from morning until dusk. One Night we even to the boat for a short ride to have dinner. We will definitely be staying again.

Great Vacation at The Cove!

  • 5 of 5

As first-time renters on VRBO, we were a little apprehensive at first. But, the booking and stay couldn't have been any easier! The Gregorys were very helpful with our needs and questions during our stay [June 18-21]. Plus, if you forgot to pack your wine or finished it too early, they also provided additional bottles for a small fee! We never had to leave the house unless it was time to jump in the lake, which was literally their back yard! It's a great place to bring any water toys, boogie boards, canoes, SUP boards, ect. Also the house is right next to the neighborhood boat ramp if you choose to bring your boat or jet ski! Overall, the Cove and the Gregorys were much more hospitable than we could have ever imagined!

Beware of losing full payment!

  • 1 of 5

The owner cancelled our reservation within less than 2 weeks of our date of arrival without any cause and did not refund our 3 night holiday stay that we paid for in full at the time of booking. This was the worst experience I have ever had with any rental. I have been using VRBO for over 10 years and am appalled that an owner would do such a thing. In March 2015 we booked this rental for July 4th weekend for 3 families which included 6 adults and 3 children (ages 4, 11, and 12)). We paid the owner in full as requested upon booking. We completed the owner’s contract and as requested provided a copy of my husband’s and my driver’s license and a list of the 9 people and their ages that would be staying at the rental. Three weeks before our reservation date the owner informed me of a new contract. This time she wanted driver’s licenses for all adults which we also complied with, although I thought it was odd. We had some plans change for our guests and we were now going to have 3 more children come with us (ages – 16, 16, and 12). I put in the request for the additional guests assuming there would be no issues since the agreement allowed for additional guests to be added at rate/person/night and the agreement even said to bring air mattresses for the additional guests. The owner denied our request saying that “teens” were not welcome and she would only allow crib age children. She also noted we should find additional accommodations for our guests in excess of 9. We contacted another rental company and were able to secure another condo for the extra guests. I asked the owner whether the extra guests would be allowed to eat dinner with us at the owner’s property. The owner has security cameras on the property and I did not want to violate any implied rules of having visitors on the premise. The owner did not respond to my question but rather simply canceled my reservation saying my request was too “stressful” for her. She not only took my money but she even put the property available for rent again and is intending to collect rental money for the same dates. I filed a serious complaint with VRBO to prevent this from happening to any other future renters of this property. Owner has chosen to ignore my complaint and request for full refund for services not rendered.
